Key Functions of Zurich

Zurich Insurance Group offers many rewarding career opportunities for talented professionals. We are committed to your career development and ongoing education. So, if you decide to further your career in another role, business unit or country, we will help you with the appropriate training to get there.

Demand is always strong for talented people with valuable skills over a wide spectrum, particularly the core insurance roles: Actuaries, Claims Specialists and Underwriters. Of course, what is right for you will depend on your expertise and personal interests. Here are some possible routes you could take at Zurich:

Underwriting

Product underwriting

Underwriting is the process of evaluating risk, and it’s therefore up to our underwriters to decide whether a risk is one that we are willing to insure and what we should be charging for it. Underwriting provides essential technical knowledge and expertise that helps us remain profitable.

Market underwriting

Market underwriters identify and evaluate the risks and exposure levels of potential customers. They decide whether to insure a risk and, if so, for what premium. Our market-facing underwriters define our go-to market strategy and are responsible for quoting to our customers and ultimately closing a deal. By setting limits on our risk exposure, they make sure that the premiums we charge are profitable and correspond to the level of risk.

Claims

Our Claims function is critical to ensuring we deliver a first-class service to our customers efficiently, professionally and with empathy. Our claims handlers deal with a whole range of situations, from stolen cars to flood-damaged businesses, and need to be able to work quickly with our customers to provide support at an often-stressful time.

Business Change & IT

Business Change & IT provides high quality support and expertise to our Life and General Insurance businesses. The team uses their expertise to deliver first-class project governance and IT assurance to our Life and General Insurance businesses, contributing to future success and growth. BC&IT plays an integral role in driving our businesses’ strategic priorities while also ensuring our systems are secure, stable and simple.

Finance

Finance has a wider remit at Zurich than in many organisations as it encompasses Financial Controlling, Risk and Controls and tax. Using their expertise and business insights, our Finance teams help us deliver our financial plans.

Actuarial

The work of our talented and specialist actuarial team underpins nearly everything we do. From product development to financial management, the teams are responsible for a range of strategic decision-making initiatives. We have team in our Life Insurance business, spanning both Finance and Underwriting, with exciting opportunities for career development.

Risk Engineering

Risk selection, pricing and improvement are fundamental to the success of Zurich. To do this effectively requires specialist expertise and understanding of the industries our customers operate in and the hazards to which they are exposed. Zurich’s in-house Risk Engineering team provide that expertise, which is something that sets us apart in the eyes of our customers.

Marketing

Our Marketing function is a dynamic and creative environment covering a number of areas that focus on delivering high quality communications for our business. Our marketing professionals engage across all parts of the Zurich business and with external partners.

Supporting Functions

Human Resources

In any organisation, people are the most effective agents of growth, renewal and inspiration. Making sure that Zurich has the people, the talents and the skills to make it succeed today and tomorrow is the work of Human Resources. The team works with each area of the business to meet its people needs locally, and to ensure a globally consistent approach to sourcing, managing, developing and motivating our people.

Risk management, Legal and Compliance

As a general insurer, Zurich is subject to strict financial services regulations. Zurich has established robust systems and controls to ensure it meets its regulatory obligations. It is the responsibility of Risk management, Legal and Compliance to provide assurance of their effectiveness. The teams perform a wide range of advisory and monitoring activity, working closely with the business, to provide senior management with assurance that the control framework is operating effectively and remains fit for purpose.
